Anatomical heart sculpted in ZBrush. I made this accurate to the best of my ability but obviously the interior is hollow unlike a professional medical heart model.

I originally sculpted this at life size, but scaled it down by about 25% to save money on material costs. The pictures you see are the Frosted Ultra Detail via Shapeways (http://shpws.me/IF2n), which gives it a nice transparency affect. I'm not sure how this would come out a FDM printer but I'd love to see someone give it a shot!


I made this via Shapeways in the Frosted Ultra Detail material. No guarantees about how an FDM printer might deal with this. The thinnest wall is .8mm I believe.

Absolutely beautiful model. Printed with supports at 0.1mm resolution sliced by Simplify3D as a gift and it looks stunning. Incredibly accurate!
Thank you for the model!

How do I go about scaling it back up i need to put things inside of it

What setting would you use?

hello could explain how I can convert those MRI files into other 3D CAD program files? such as .stl or .stp

I didn't convert an MRI file. I sculpted it in ZBrush based on photo references.

hello! this looks fantastic.
I would like to make this... I'm curious if you have a file for second-extruder support material.

Sorry I do not.

Congrats! Your model has been featured as one of the Top 3D Printed Christmas / Holiday Models this year. Search "Top Free 3D Printed Christmas Gift 2015 Printing Ninja" to see. (sorry thingiverse bans URL addresses)

Awesome thanks! Searching that doesn't bring up any results though?

Can you please tell me about its wall thickness?


Where did you get a heart to 3d scan?

I didn't scan it. I modeled it in ZBrush while looking at a variety of anatomy references.

Yes, it's hollow. I had it printed by Shapeways so can't take credit.
